    Blu-Ray Settings

    I am making blu-ray discs an am unable to change color schemes (area is grayed out). Also unable to choose what happens after a video plays (after playing area in setting is also grayed out). Are these options not available when making blu-rays? Does anyone know how to change these settings in blu-rays?
  2. I copied all of my photos from iPhoto into a folder per some other discussions within the Toast 12 forum in order to burn them onto blu-ray discs to archive them. I will have to span them across six 25GB discs to hold all of my photos. I only burnt the first disc as a test to see how it worked and I can view the photos on my computer but if I want to view them on a TV with a standard blu-ray player the player doesn't recognize the disc. Is there anything I can do to make these discs compatible with blu-ray players? My intent is to place these discs in a safe deposit box to keep them safe in case of disc failure or loss of the computer but it would be nice to be able to view them without a computer especially since macs no longer even come with optical drives and never have supported blu-ray.
  3. Hello. I need some help with Toast 12 Titanium .. How do I burn a *lossless* data blu-ray disc? I've gone through all the preferences possible, emptied my "Trash", repaired disk permissions, restarted my computer.. everything.. but when I add a folder to the window, it calculates the folder as being a few gigabytes smaller than the original.. I don't see an option anywhere that is allowing me to select render-quality or to avoid using "compression".. Even in the "Options" tab (right next to the "Media" tab) there is no option for compression/no compression.. I've also tried compressing my original data into .zip folder and then adding it to Toast, which still ended up importing a filesize smaller than that of the original.. I am looking to back up very valuable information and need to make sure that every single file is exactly as they were originally (aka no compression whatsoever).. Can anybody help me in how I can go about making an *exact/flawless/no compression* blu-ray data disk in Toast 12 Titanium? Thank you so much!

    Bd Burn Speed

    Have a Mac with an LG 16x Blu-ray Writer and a Verbatim 6x Blu-ray disc and yet it's only writing at 1x speed. Is there some setting that can be changed or does it (Toast) automatically decide what speed to write at ?
  5. Great to have Roxio (Corel) Toast DVD but Toast Blu-ray it is what i am waiting on the Apple Apps Store.
  6. I am very frustrated and disappointed with Toast 11. I used to use version10 all the time to make blu-ray discs etc. I rarely can get Toast 11 to convert a disc for me. it fails 9 out of 10 times and the conversion number it gives me before it converts is always wrong. It tells me the file will be 600 megs, and instead it converts it to 17 gigs which is way too big. The serious problem I have now is that I can't make blu-ray discs with Toast anymore because unlike Toast 10, there's no option to add separate audio to picture if you have a professional 5.1 audio file you want to marry to the picture. Did Roxio decide to make Toast only for beginners and amateurs who don't have any professional projects? There doesn't seem to be anything on the market now that can burn blu-rays and marry up 5.1 separate audio. Anyone know a workaround? I called the Roxio Toast support line and they told me it's not possible anymore, but there has to be a workaround. I don't know why they would downgrade their software especially since they charge you additional to make blu-rays. Thanks to any one who's a genius and has figured this out. Bryan
  7. Hi there, We've been burning a bunch of Blu-Rays lately, from a TS file created from a 720x960 59.94 progressive quicktime. They burn great and we never have any issues. Recently we had our show unconverted to 1920x1080 29.97 interlaced, and we're now compressing the same way and outputting a TS file that is now at 1920x1080 29.97 interlaced settings. Whenever we set Toast to burn, it begins multiplexing but then stops without warning. The yellow progress bar disappears and we go straight back to the Toast window, without any kind of an error message. I can hit "Burn" again and it goes back to multiplexing, and the cycle continues.The Blu-Ray that we try and burn remains completely blank. I am certain that we've been able to burn Blu-Rays from a 1080i TS file before, this problem seems new. Has anyone experienced this? Thanks! -Erin
  8. I'm using a 27" IMac with Final Cut Pro 7.0.3. When I chose the disc image option in Toast it seems to be for DVD since the file size was only 3.8GB. Obviously, I'd like to have a Blu-ray disc image so that reburning my project again and again won't take forever. Thanks in advance, Scott

    Burn Iso To Blu-Ray Disc

    If this topic is already covered please point me to the thread. I'm new to toast. Have just burned an iso to disc from Adobe Encore for Blu-Ray. I have yet to figure out how to do the Blu-Ray burn from Toast. I've tried Video and Convert and neither seem to be the ticket.

    Size Of Blu-Ray Versus Dvd

    I upgraded to Creator NXT 2 from Creator 2011 in part because apparently the version I bought with my Dell PC with Blu-Ray drive did not support Blu-Ray drives. (For that I blame Dell, not Roxio). In any case, I was finding that captured video from VHS tapes, which was taking maybe 3G/hour, was not able to fit all that much on a DVD. (I captured it using a DVR function of a HAVA remote viewing device, since I failed miserably with TWO different direct capture devices). I’m not sure if that size sounds high for the quality of the video, but that’s just what it is. I created DVDs… I could fit around 3 hours on a DVD, using either “as original recorded” or EP. I got some blu-ray disks and the new program. Right off the bat, it tells me that using EP, before even putting in a movie, I can only save a little under 6 and a half hours. AND when I tried the same videos, it pretty much confirmed that. I’m confused. This is 5x the size disks, and it only stores 2x as much video? This is off 6-8 hour VHS tape, so it is far from high quality, so I don’t see a reason to make it hi def. Is everything burned on Blu-Ray necessarily high def? Is it a program option to burn it to the same resolution as would be burned on DVD that would fit more hours on a disk? Or would a standard player not recognize and play it if it didn’t take all that much extra space (2-3 times as much space as the same video burned on DVD)? Is it a clue that I don’t seem to be able to select the aspect ratio, on an empty blu-ray project or on a recorded video (in MyDVD)? It only shows 16:9. I went back to DVD and I DID have that option, although changing that didn’t change the time remaining in an empty project.
  11. I have several DVDs with movies of my family that I want to archive on Blu-Ray discs. Should I make multiple image files and then burn them to a Blu-Ray disc? I want to avoid wasting space on the BD discs. Or is there an easier way in Creator? I haven't used Creator 2011 for a while but haven't found a way to do this and didn't see this topic in the forums. Thanks for your help.

    Can't Burn At 23.98

    Hello, Whenever I try to burn my 23.98 Quicktime ProRes file to blu-ray using Toast 11, the resulting disc is 29.97. Anybody know what I am doing wrong? Thanks, Kirk
  13. I have three video files that I dropped into Toast, but only get video for two of them. I am trying to create a Blu-ray disc with 3 menu choices (a film, a production slide show, and a gag reel). The three files (largest less than nine minutes long) are: First: (video black, only plays audio when burned, original .mp4 file size 1.02 GB, 08:20 duration - the film) Video: MPEG-4 Video, 1920 x 1080, 23.98 fps Audio: MPEG-4 Audio, Stereo, 48000 Hz Second: (video black when burned, original .mov file size 140 MB, 03:25 duration - the production slide show) Video: H.264, 1920 x 1080, 23,98 fps Audio: none Third: (plays audio and video, original .mov file size 273 MB, 1:55 duration - the gag reel) Video: MPEG-4 Video, 1920 x 1090, 15 fps Audio: MPEG-4 Audio, Stereo, 44100 Hz Output summary: 2.55 GB, Blu-ray Video, Video MPEG-2, 26.0 Mbps (26.0 Mbps max), Audio Dolby digital 192 kbps Biggest difference I see is the 15 fps on the video that plays vs. 23.98 fps. Will play all files (but not the menu) from a burned disc on my Blu-ray burner LG Super Multi Blue BE14 using Roxio Video Player, but on my Panasonic DMP-BD30 Blu-ray player I get a menu but only can see the video of the third menu item. Using Toast Titanium 11.1 on a MacBook Pro 2.93 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB 1067 Mhz DDR3 memory, Mac OS X 10.7.5. Custom Toast settings: Encoding: Video Format MPEG-2 Average Bit Rate 26.0 Mbps Maximum Bit Rate 26.0 Mbps Motion Estimation Best Reencoding Automatic Field Dominance Automatic Aspect Ration Automatic (all should be 16:9) Audio Format Dolby Digital Data Rate Automatic Thanks for any help!

    Hd And Dv Compatible Content On A Single Dvd?

    Hello, I'm creating a DVD slideshow for a local theatre. The images (naturally) look much better in HD, so I've started using the High-Definition DVD-Video plugin for Toast 11 (MacbookPro running 10.6.8). In addition to the HD slideshow, I used Toast's "Include DVD-Rom content" option to include JPEGs of all the photos. The disk plays nicely on a PS3 and on Blu-Ray players, and I can explore the content on my MBP. However, the disk shows up as blank in a standard Windows PC DVD drive. (Tested on a Dell Inspiron and an HP G72). Is it possible to format the disk such that it automatically plays HD on a Blu-Ray player, but on a PC with a standard DVD drive, the user can open the saved JPEGs? If so, I can include an .mp4 or .mov of the slideshow that they can watch as well. Thanks in advance!

    Blu-Ray "unstable Connection" Error

    Hey everyone, I'm on an iMac (Lion 10.6.8), running Toast 11 Titanium, and trying to burn a Blu-Ray DVD. I've installed the plug-in needed. However, the project will go through encoding and multi-plexing, and then give me "Error 4: Unstable Connection" once it starts the "writing" portion. I'm using an external drive from MCE Technologies to do this (It's an LG Venus DS5). I've called their customer service and was told that they have never experience this particular issue with the drive. They suggest a software issue. The computer DOES recognize the drive, so I know that that isn't the issue. It connects via USB 2.0 So far, I have tried burning to both Memorex BD-R Blu-ray discs and Verbatim BD-R Blu-ray discs but have had no luck. I don't want to waste anymore discs, so will have to go and get a rewritable for future tests. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions, thoughts, or experience with these issues? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! Stokes
  17. Very strange: I want to to burn 19GB of authored BR video on a BD-R. If I put in a blank disc, select UDF, drag the video folder into the TOAST window, it correctly displays 19GB. Hitting "Burn" starts the process, which is stopped showing a hardware failure message. The blank disc remains untouched. The total file size is now 38GB. After a few tries I figured out the following workflow as a work-around: 1.) Quit Toast 2.) Open tray 3.) Start Toast 4.) Select UDF 5.) Drop your video folder into Toast window 6.) Hit "Burn" 7.) Confirm to close tray Now it works. 19GB successfully burnt.

    What Kind Of Support Is This?

    I have an issue with Roxio Toast 11 Titanium. It worked fine until I changed the Pioneer BDR205 burner for a BDR208. Now it freezes and burns coasters out of my archive blu-rays. The hardware seems OK. No updates there. I had to change the device because the Panasonic long life blu-rays are tested with the 208, not with the 205. Today I received the following response: Our product experts will investigate and determine if the issue warrants scheduling in a future update/release. We will contact you if more information is required. Somehow that doesn't make me happy. Do they advise me to sit and wait for their experts and meanwhile forget about my archiving? But that's what I bought the license for, well partly at least. I am sad to say, that this is the second issue with Roxio. The fist being about paying full amount for a license although I was upgrading from the version shipped with my external LaCie Blu-ray burner. So, if you have high expectations of the support people of Roxio, think again.
  19. Hello, Any help for the Noob? I burned a wonderful blu-ray disc image but I can't figure out how to turn that into a playable blu-ray dvd. When I use the ISO setting, it merely reburns that same disc image on to a blu-ray DVD-Rom. Can you please let me know the steps to making the image burn as playable? I would appreciate a screen grab when appropriate. I'm using Mac Toast Titanium 11 Pro. I really appreciate your help!!!! Kirk
  20. Hoping someone can help me here, I have an asus g74s and it came preloaded with Roxio CinePlayer BD. Only just yesterday did I use my laptop to play a movie for the first time, it was The Dark Knight Rises from a Redbox on blu-ray, and it worked perfectly. Today however, I rented Looper, also on blu-ray, but this time cineplayer wouldnt play it. The error message "The application could not read this copy protected disc. Please clean the disc or try another." Both movies are blu-ray, both JUST came out on the redbox and are clean and scratchless. I tried looking through the forums but couldn't find an answer, and I've tried running Check for Updates from the Help button and there are none that it could find.

    Image File Not Recognized

    I just upgraded my Toast 10 Titanium to Toast 11 Titanium and also downloaded the Blu-Ray HD plug in. I have a new Mac Mini quad core i7 with 16 gigs of RAM, and an external USB3.0 LG 14X BluRay writer. I sometimes copy TV shows using EyeTV or my DVR that my cable company provides, and want to archive them on BluRay. My first attempt involved a couple of Christmas movies I had recorded using EyeTV. EyeTV will export to Toast seamlessly either an m4p file or Quicktime movie in HD. I understand that it's a good idea to have Toast create an Image file first, then burn from that in case something goes wrong...so that's what I did. I named the 2 movies I planned to put on a single BluRay disc as "Christmas Movies". The resultant file as seen in Finder is labeled "Christmas Movies.toast".....and the label beneath the name in Finder is "Master Image File". For whatever reason.....when I tried to drag and drop this Image file that Toast created back into Toast so I could burn the BluRay disc....I get an error message telling me it's an unrecognized format! How is that possible? I tried a work around by switching from the "Video" tab up top to "Copy". That screen accepted the image file, and sure enough....it burned the disc for me. However......the menu screens were okay.....but when you selected either movie.....there was sound but NO video. Obviously something didn't work. Any suggestions? Dan
  24. I have an external Blu-Ray drive attached to my Mac. I would like to convert my Blu-Ray collection to my AppleTV3 in high-definition. I've looked at lots of fly-by-night software packages and have been unimpressed thus far. Will Toast 11 allow me to do this?
  25. Howdy, I've just purchased my first blu-ray drive from OWC and purchased the fabulous Toast 11 with the blu-ray plug-in. I noticed that the maximum bit-rate option for authoring blu-ray discs is 26mbps: http://i.imgur.com/TmX4M.png However, I notice that commercial movies typically play at a max of around 32mbps as I've seen with The Avengers and Prometheus. Is there a way to go beyond 26mbps or another piece of software that'll do that? thanks.
